Today's achievements

In an earlier post today I mentioned that I was going fabric shopping for the carousel quilt, here is what I purchased. Some lovely fresh me & my sisters fabrics in blue pink and green, with the purple one for the border.
 And I have already been busy, and have finished the applique of the diamond borders.
Next to draw the horses and start on the centre panel.  As that is quite a big part of the quilt I think I will leave that until next weekend when I have more time to work on it

Earlier today I made another bag for the market stand in December, I found this Japanese print in my stash, the I have no idea what I purchased it for and think it really works well in a bag.  It has gold in it so is really looks quite stylish, and matches nicely with the deep blue panels on the side.

This week I plan to centre all of my sewing on FWQA blocks, and will try to do one per night, as I am quite a few behind having only done 5 last month, when I should be doing 8 per month (or 2 per week). Lets see how I go.  Until then, bye for now.
